The business of thia store is to keep and sell a full stock of selected lines of the best footwear. Our time and energy are devoted to this one purpose, and this fall we are working to this end harder and more successfully than ever before. Our lines are chosen to meet fully the de mand for the highest and finest grades of goods made, for the medium goods for every day service, and for strong durable shoes that sell for a little money. In all of these lines you will find our stock as large, as complete and as varied as in any retail shoe store in New England, and you can always come here with confidence that we will meet all demands and all tastes, and that we will guarantee everything we sell to be as represented. To do this requires us to carry a very heavy stock of goods, and it is inevitable that there should be always an accumulation of broken sizes, changing styles and odd lots. And this is why we always have something in the way of a special bargain to show our customers. Just now it is a lot of good, new shoes for men and women, right and reliable in every way, for 99c. Four lots are included in the sale, as follows: These Good Shoes For 99 Cents. 99 Men's all sizes, Satin Calf 99 cents. See the display in our north window.
